good morning. it was a chance for either the yanks or rays to pull away in the a.l. east. yet after four games, we're back to where we started after a split in the big apple. works out for cc. rays were up, 4-3. it was frustrating for the yanks. that was it for cc. in the seventh, vasquez hit not one, not two, but three straight batters. that's a major league mark. the rays won it big, 10-3. they're now just a half game back of the yanks for first place. then to toronto. batista continues to hit the cover off the ball. he became just the 26th player to his the 25th home run of the year. not to be outdone, ichiro, a single in the fifth game him 200 hits for the 10th straight season. first player ever to do it. in the seventh, thought he had a chance to make the grab. instead, he took a tumble and head over heels and on to the field. that's embarrassed. blue jays won it, 1-0.
